The danger is, as you get older, that you may not see your feet when you look straight down. However I do have shots that will qualify, some from years ago.
|Looking down from St Rule's Tower, St Andrews - c1956/7|
Moving on about 20 years to Norway I was looking down again.
|1000 feet down to the water close to the Pulpit Rock, Lysefjord|
The Pulpit Rock (Prekestolen) has a vertical drop of 1982 feet (604m) down to the fjord.
Much more mundane is the shot I took looking at a drain last winter.
When we were at Richmond Castle last week I baulked at climbing the narrow spiral staircase to the top - that would have been an ideal place to look straight down. So I have had to settle for this view from the walls.

Of course if you are not careful someone may catch you looking straight down.
|Danger strimmer at work!|
No, I wasn't whacking weeds.
